Chocolate Coconut Bites

We certainly lucked out with this one.

It makes a regular appearance at our house… doesn’t stay for long though.

What you’ll need…

  • 2c of shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 3tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1-2tbsp of coconut nectar or agave
  • 1tsp of raw vanilla powder

Put all of the above into a food processor and whiz away for a minute or two.

Press all of this goodness into a loaf pan (parchment lined) and place in the freezer.

While it’s in the freezer…

Place about 50g of raw dark chocolate in a stainless steel bowl and melt over a pot of simmering water.

Once the chocolate has just melted, remove the coconut mixture from the freezer.

Use a spatula and spread the chocolate goodness over the top.

Before the chocolate hardens, sprinkle a little bit of himalayan salt over the top…..Β  YUM!!!

Put it back in the freezer for about ten minutes and voila!

We recommend that you keep these beauties in the fridge… I’d say up to a week, but I guarantee they won’t last that long.

Enjoy!!

    Hey, do you think you could use honey instead of agave?

  2. Simply Dish says:

    yes! but then they wouldn’t be vegan. πŸ™‚
    you could also try maple syrup or brown rice syrup.
    let me know how they turn out! πŸ™‚
